New Program: Diversity & Inclusion

Realizing the Potential of Sustained Diversity through Genuine Inclusion

The tangible benefits of diversity in the workplace are now well-established. Yet diversity can only deliver on its full potential when it exists in a genuinely inclusive environment.

Diversity and Inclusion: Cultural Awareness and Competency helps us understand the hidden biases that can keep us from achieving inclusivity and equity within our organizations.

Diversity & Inclusion: Cultural Awareness & Competency

A new program to help organizations realize tangible benefits from diversity-focused efforts

Develop the tools for the self-awareness and cultural competency needed for your organization to perform at its highest level.

The benefits of diversity in the workplace include faster problem-solving, better decision-making, increased innovation, employee engagement, and better financial performance. Diversity, however, can only deliver on its full potential when it exists in a genuinely inclusive environment. An organizational culture that does not make talented, diverse employees feel valued and supported is certain to lose them, increasing the cost of turnover and lowering morale and productivity.

What You'll Learn

  Recognize conscious or unconscious (implicit) biases and implement ways to mitigate the negative effects they may have on others.

  Be more culturally aware and recognize and appreciate the nuances of culture and background in our organizations and personal life.

   Utilize skills to communicate with empathy, manage conflict effectively, prevent misunderstanding, build trust and psychological safety, and create stronger relationships.

Why You Want To Learn It

In addition to being the right thing to do, the tangible benefits of diversity in the workplace are now well-established. Among them are faster problem-solving, better decision-making, increased innovation, employee engagement, and better financial performance.

Still, many organizations are finding the retention of diverse talent challenging. Developing a more inclusive culture may be the missing element.

How It Will Help You

Understanding the mindset and skills that provide the foundation for successful training in support of sustained diversity can help organizations ensure their diversity-focused efforts have the positive effect they intend.

Achieving Inclusion through Cultural Awareness

Struggling with our own biases is part of what it means to be human, but research suggests that increasing our cultural awareness and cultural competency can help us contribute to a genuinely inclusive environment that supports sustained diversity.

5 Common DEI misconceptions that are ruining the workplace and hurting your organization

Myth #1 Diversity, equity, and inclusion only benefit minority groups.

Reality: Although minorities stand to gain the most immediate results of successful diversity programs, DEI actually benefits everyone, especially those working in an organization or team of people. Organizations with higher rates of diversity, for example, enjoy better employee engagement and less turnover. Those are two key metrics of more satisfied employees, which in itself results in higher productivity and profitability. On top of that, a diverse workforce leads to less groupthink, which is a serious inhibitor of innovation and performance.
